    Hello Everyone

    Hello, I'm new to the site so I thought I would introduce myself! My name is Sarah and I'm a 35 year old therapist living in Half Moon Bay California. I grew up a "pk" in a progressive church and so rebelled by joining the fundamentalists for awhile! Back to making peace with my progressive roots and figuring out where I fit in within the Christian tradition. Also, I've been very interested in what it has been like to identify as Christian at all in the SF Bay Area. So many connotations! So I've found some of my work has be to explore that with other people (perhaps as a part of exploring that for myself!?) Anyway, happy to find this site and look forward to the discussions. Sarah
  2. The Living Arts Counseling Center Presents: Progressive Christianity: Moving through negative cultural projections to reclaim our spiritual identity Do you wonder how to articulate your spiritual identity to yourself or others? Do you fear claiming your Christian identity in the face of negative attitudes or remarks? This day long workshop will help participants to explore and articulate their identity as progressive Christians in the Bay Area, and how this identity informs how they participate in the world around them. Through dialogue, discussion and the use of interactive exercises such as drama techniques, storytelling and images, we will foster a supportive and creative environment to raise and explore these questions together. Shy people and seekers welcome.
